Using this contraceptive involves intruding into life and death matters that belong to God alone. Christians should steer clear of The Pill and Christian leaders should speak out more against it.
Unlimited Potentialby Steve Countryman
Knowing who you are is the key to unlocking the unlimited potential in you. You are the property of Jehovah God bought and paid for with the blood of Jesus. A bond slave of Christ, adopted into the royal family as a child of God. You are made co-heirs to the throne as a son or daughter of the King!

A CASE OF TWO IDENTITIES.by ROBIN BOSCH
There is confusion as to the mechanics of our new life in Christ. How sad it is, that as born again Spirit filled believers, we walk about as migrants in a "never never" land, caught between two countries and two identities. Not firmly believing that a change has taken place.
Whatever A Man Sows...by Dinora Garza
Why is there so much wickedness in the world? We've inherited Adam's sinful nature. But there's yet another reason. Men have deliberately hardened their hearts against God, and what they sowed, they are reaping...
The Ghost Armyby Alan Allegra
The religious world has its own Ghost Army that is just as effective. Many churches have their own detachment of a spiritual Ghost Army. John warns us about them in 2 John 7: "For many deceivers have gone out into the world, those who do not confess the coming of Jesus Christ in the flesh. Such a one is the deceiver and the antichrist."

HUMAN SACRIFICE IN THE BIBLEby Dr Surya Kumar Daimari
There are ample evidence of the practice of human sacrifices mainly children as burnt offerings to gods and goddesses among the heathen in biblical times such as in the case of Ammonites to Molech and the Phoenicians to Baal. Lev 18:21; 20:2 cf Jer 19:5; 32:35 These practices were mostly found in Phoenicia and the Punic colonies of North Africa at Carthage.
Christians Must Be Careful Not to Endorse Illegitimate Divorces or Remarriagesby Max Aplin
According to the Bible, divorce and remarriage are only acceptable to God in special circumstances. Unless these circumstances are present, what is said to be a divorce is not really a divorce at all, and what is said to be a remarriage is in reality an act of adultery, since the original marriage is still in effect in God's sight. Christians must be careful not to follow the values of society in this area or to endorse illegitimate divorces or remarriages.

O Lordby Steve Countryman
"Robots would've been easier and a lot less trouble. But then how would the God of Love be able to show and demonstrate His powerful love to His creation of robots? You gave us free will and let us dig our sinful holes of selfishness, arrogance, pride while you watched brokenhearted. Your chosen people and nation that turned their backs on you time and time again. Disregarding your love, your provisions, your protection and deliverance."

Fear Not!by stephanie reck
Be strong and courageous. Do not be afraid or terrified of them, for the Lord your God goes with you, He will never leave or forsake you. Deuteronomy 31:6
God tells us in the Bible more than 100 times, "Do not be afraid." Yet, there are times we are plagued by fear. Fear can be paralyzing, and is often a by-product of worry and anxiety. There is an acronym many have used for fear: False Evidence Appearing Real.
Believers Accept Compromise At Their Perilby Dr. Henderson Ward
It is wise to remember that Satan does not care how you fall from grace, as long as he gets you to fall, and the sooner you fall is most appealing to him. The merchants of evil care greatly about one thing in particular, your destruction, and like an invading army will use all they possess, every dirty trick at their command, to defeat you.
What Does God call being Successfulby Sue Darling
We all have to learn more about God's personality and look at things through His eyes. For example the crucifixion looked like defeat far as His enemies was concern. What they didn't count on was that there was nothing more powerful in changing this world. Because not only was the crucifixion was powerful, the Resurrection would not of been possible without the crucifixion. So what seems like a failure in the eyes of the world, might be a door to so much good to com that people do not see at the time.
How Can the Bible Teach That Salvation Is Not by Doing Good Deeds and That It Is Conditional upon Doing Good Deeds?by Max Aplin
Some biblical passages teach that people are saved by faith in Christ and not by performing good deeds. Other passages teach that good deeds are in some sense necessary for salvation. These groups of passages can be reconciled if we allow for different levels of technicality in how things are expressed. Technically, people are saved by faith and that faith is always accompanied by good deeds. Less technically, salvation is conditional on the faith plus good deeds package that every true believer has.
